About two weeks after purchasing the ACE 250, I headed to the beach to hunt. Not long after, I got a signal that hit just below the nickel slot, so I decided to dig. In the second trowel of sand, out falls a white ring!...

Garrett Ace 250 Finds What Others Can't
I've been hunting about 37 years and I recently went to a field where an open hunt was held about 8 years ago. I've hunted the site with one of your competitor's metal detectors, a $900 unit, and only found several dimes, so I figured the field was about hunted out....

Gold, Silver & Jewelry Discoveries Made With Ace "Down Under"
I have been using my Ace 250 in Australia since February 2005. As a relative newcomer to coin and treasure detecting I have found my Ace 250 to be the best thing since sliced bread. It is light, easy to swing and the controls are so easy to operate. It has very impressive depth and functionality for the price that more than rivals some of the more expensive machines on the market....

Garrett B's First Gold Found With a Garrett
Call it beginner's luck, but young Garrett B. calls it the find of a lifetime. New to the hobby of treasure-hunting, this Arizona youth recently joined his grandfather Jim in a search for gold. As fate would have it, he found his first gold on that hunt. The metal detector he was using was - appropriately enough - a Garrett ACE 250. Garrett was searching Rye Patch Reservoir in Nevada with his grandfather when he made his exciting discovery. This multi-day July trip was sponsored by Gerry's Metal Detectors of Boise, Idaho, and included enthusiasts from Colorado, Nevada, Tennessee and Washington. Although each of the hunters on this particular trip was lucky enough to find so...

Found Lost Ring with Garrett Ace 250
Over 15 years ago, while painting the eves of our house, I went to wipe off the paint running down my hand and my ring went flying off. I was up high on a shed roof, so I saw it roll down and off the end of the roof. Over the next few months, there were many attempts to find it, crawling on the ground and pushing the grass around. Just recently I purchased a GARRETT 250 from KELLYCO, put it together, read the instructions, watched the dvd and within a half hour of looking...Wallah! Found the ring...old paint still on it...AMAZING...couldn’t be happier...think I found a new hobby. It was all new to me and I found the dvd extremely helpful...

Golden Napoleon Coin from 1813 found with Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector
I started with this hobby about a year ago, a good friend now that lives in our village showed me his finds and took us out on a detecting trip. My first find with his detector (Garrett GTI 2500) was a musket ball, I think after a year searching I've about 300 of them! A week later I bought my Garrett ACE 250. Since then I went on detecting trips with my best buddy Andy. About a month later, the 9th of August 2009 was the big day. We woke up at 7 o'clock in the morning and went out searching. It was summer so it was pretty hot outside and the fields were perfect. We went to our first field and after a half an hour we found a silver coin! The coin is a silver "Willem van Ora...
